20 Secrets of Very Fit People

From the Million Dollar Body Club - Join Today and Workout to Win!

  1. Keep a water bottle with you at all times and drink from it often. Water is the drink of choice, but if you don't enjoy plain water, than liven it up! Try portable single-serve packs of Crystal Light, Propel, Diet Ice, Reebok Water, Vitamin Water, or some other form of healthy fluid intake with minimal or zero calories.

  2. Look at exercise as a pleasure and privilege, not a burden or chore. Think positively about the changes regular exercise will produce. Rather than obsessing about your next meal, get excited about your next workout!

  3. Eat well-balanced meals and remember that excessive calories, even if they are fat-free and high-protein will turn to excess weight! No matter what the latest fad diet, extra calories equal extra weight!

  4. Limit caffeine and exposure to even secondhand smoke.

  5. Focus on short-term fitness goals with an emphasis on completing daily exercise.

  6. Keep a daily log of what you're actually eating. This includes grabbing a handful of chips here, the crust of your kid's sandwich, and ALL your snacking.

  7. Enjoy an occasional (once a week) "unhealthy" treat, but never an "unhealthy" week or "unhealthy" vacation.

  8. Enjoy contributing to the health of others by having a partner or friends to exercise with, as well as recruiting others who desire to feel better and have more energy. Have a neighbor who walks every morning? Ask if you can join in!

  9. Avoid monotony by taking up new forms of exercising or using things that keep you motivated and inspired, like new shoes or great music.

  10. Subscribe to fitness magazines to keep focused on health as an overall way of life.

  11. Invest in the right toolsgood shoes, a portable MP3 player or iPod, fitness equipment, a new series of tapes, etc.

  12. Make it your goal to do some form of exercise 6 or 7 days a week. If some days you exercise once in the morning and once in the evening, even better! If you're eating right, exercise will fuel your energy level!


  13. Don't compare your body to others. Instead, work to be your personal best.
  14. If your diet is unbalanced, take daily vitamin and mineral supplements for total health.

  15. Work to take your exercise to new levels of intensity.

  16. Create an exercise schedule the day before, instead of leaving it to chance or waiting to "find" the time. If our last two Presidents of the United States can make time to work out every day, you can make time too!

  17. Move beyond the boundaries of weight loss and into total fitness. Measure success by the way your clothes fit and not a number on a scale.

  18. Stick with eating plans you can maintain indefinitely. Remember that no matter how hard you're working out, if you're consuming too many calories, you'll never see the muscles that lie beneath layers of fatty tissue.

  19. Get adequate amounts of sleep, but remember that people who exercise regularly fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.

  20. Limit alcohol intake to special occasions.
